About the organisation

Melbourne Museum aims to inform and inspire visitors. Melbourne Museum stands adjacent to the historic Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton Gardens. Together, they constitute the largest museum complex in the Southern Hemisphere. Melbourne Museum uses the latest technology and interpretation methods to present educational exhibitions and programs on science and technology, indigenous cultures, the environment, the human mind and body and Australian society. National icons on display include Phar Lap, Australia's greatest ever racehorse, and CSIRAC (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation Automatic Computer), the world's oldest surviving intact first-generation computer.
